Barcelona Birding Point will confirm your booking as soon as your funds safely arrive to our account.

During the booking Barcelona Birding Point will provide the client with a payment calendar according with the balance of the requested tour.
In the case of cancellation of your tour, Barcelona Birding Point is not responsible for any expenses derived from your reservation.
In the case of reservations made less than 14 days before the start of the tour, the reservation can be made without completing a Reservation Form and a non-refundable payment of the total amount.
Payments made via Bank Transfer can only be made in Euros.
Payments via PayPal are welcome. In any case, and to ensure that the required amount reaches our accounts in full, a surcharge of 5% of the total to be transferred must be added at the time of sending the money.
To book a 1-day trip (Itinerary 1 day), the name and address of the client is required. The 1-day Itineraries are exempt from deposit, except when this is expressly required.
In the unlikely event that Barcelona Birding Point cancels a tour, for whatever reason, including not reaching the minimum number of participants required to complete it, all payments made, including deposits, will be returned to the payer or transferred to another tour chosen by the client.
In the event that it is the client who decides to cancel the reservation, the following cancellation charges will be applied as a general rule, without prejudice to the specific cancellation charges (Specific Conditions) that may appear in your reservation document or Guarantee Deposit of Reservation:
- If the cancellation is made between 31 and 62 calendar days (both inclusive) before the start date of the tour, 30% of the capital paid up to the time of cancellation will be returned.

These general cancellation conditions can be modified by specific conditions in some tours. The client will be informed of the specific cancellation conditions at the time of booking.
Barcelona Birding Point is responsible for offering or including a Travel and Cancellation Insurance in all tours and field trips that it organizes. If the contracted tour doesn’t include a Travel Insurance, Barcelona Birding Point will offer one apart.
In the event a client refuses the Travel and Cancellation Insurance offered by Barcelona Birding Point, wether included in the price of the tour, or offered apart , the client will be responsible for arranging their own insurance. The insurance must cover you for any personal loss or injury, medical expenses, death, loss of money, baggage and personal items including damage or loss to optics and other electrical equipment you carry with you. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct insurance and adequate cover before you join any of our tours; it is not the responsability of Barcelona Birding Point to check your policy.
Please be aware that Barcelona Birding Point accepts no liability for events beyond or outside our control, including flight delays, loss, damage or theft of luggage, optics, cameras and personal money and belongings. Barcelona Birding Point accepts no liability for strikes, weather, terrorism activity, wars or Acts of God which may cause you loss in any way. Barcelona Birding Point can accept no liability for accident, illness or death to any person or persons who ignore safety notices and/or advice written or issued by the Tour Guide or their representative or an official of any kind. Any person or persons who behave in an abusive or unacceptable manner in any respect toward the Tour Guide or any other person related or not, to the party they are travelling with, will be asked to leave the group and no monies will be returned.
Carles Oliver or any person representing Barcelona Birding Point reserves the right to refuse any person or persons from booking with them, if in their opinion, they would be a liability to the safety and enjoyment of other participants taking part in any organised tour.
The birds and/or mammals and butterflies named in any tour description are representative of species seen on past tours and pre-tour trips and as such are what is expected to be seen on the tour you have selected. Whilst every effort will be made to ensure you see as many of the species listed, it is not always possible to see everything named in the tour description. This is beyond our control and may be due to environmental and habitat changes, breeding seasons, weather conditions, location availability and as we must not forget these are wild animals and so free to roam. You may of course see additional species to those listed over the course of the tour. No guarantee of species can be offered but you do have the Barcelona Birding Point guarantee of the best possible sites providing the best chance to see these birds in their natural environment.
All tours are the result of a hard coordination with local specialists providing best locations. Barcelona Birding Point will do everything possible to ensure that your tour is as advertised. However in the case of events beyond our control, i.e.: closure of designated visiting area, strikes, adverse weather conditions etc, ., we reserve the right to alter the advertised itinerary to provide the best available alternatives. Any alterations made to the itinerary under these circumstances will, in the opinion of the tour guide, ensure locations as close to the originally planned destinations, thus providing the same opportunities to see the species advertised in the tour description.
Tours arranged by Barcelona Birding Point do not usually include any difficult or distance walking. However should any tour cover what is considered more than easy or moderate terrain you will be advised at the time of booking. Wherever possible we will provide sites which are on even ground. If you have any physical limitations or health problems please advise us prior to booking. We will always try to accommodate all levels of physical ability and no one will be excluded from any tour if an alternative site/venue can be arranged, unless it is unsafe for them to participate. In order to cater for all levels of birdwatcher we may have to incorporate early starts, late finishes and some travel of more than 150km in any one day. This is, of course, subject to the tour itinerary.
Barcelona Birding Point take great care when planning all itineraries; however mistakes and variations of detail may occur. If any mistake or variation to the advertised tour will make a considerable difference to the content or quality of the service we provide, we will inform you prior to your date of travel. No refund will be considered for mistakes or unavoidable variations that cause little or no difference to the overall tour value.
